Chapter Five – Atomic Reactions – Fusion/Thermonuclear
Instead of splitting atoms with fission, fusion pushes two atoms together until they become one atom. This is the primary atomic process within our Sun’s surface region. Compared to fission and chemical reactions, fusion requires much higher levels of vibrational energy and greater local pressures to maintain a chain reaction – we refer to this as thermal energy. In order to create bombs that can fuse atoms, we first must heat the bomb’s environment, hence the word ‘thermonuclear’ was coined. We label fission explosions as ‘nuclear’, and fusion explosions as ‘thermonuclear’. The term ‘atomic’ can refer to both types of activities.
The exclusive type of fusion bomb humans have constructed uses an isotope of the element hydrogen. Fusion bombs contain Tritium, – the set of hydrogen atoms that was formed including two more neutrons than elemental hydrogen. Tritium chemically (low-frequency harmonics) reacts exactly the same as hydrogen and Deuterium (only one extra neutron), but their physical harmonics are different at the higher frequency (fusion) ranges. Tritium has more neutrons to give up during fusion, whose knocking around helps to maintain the thermal requirement of fusion chain reaction. The process of collecting naturally existing Tritium is very expensive, but there are many billions of hydrogen atoms in the world, so the extraction process simply looks at as many hydrogen atoms it can, then identifies and captures as many of the Tritium atoms as possible.
The fusion bomb’s model can resemble the fission, nuclear bomb model, with Tritium at the bottom of the cannon barrel, except that the sliding plug in the barrel is replaced with a complete fission bomb. The fission bomb is detonated, and its power and pressure is directed to the Tritium, exciting and placing it under tremendous mechanical pressure. The nuclear device also creates localized, very hot neutrons and harmonics.
Thermonuclear explosion of Tritium begins as atoms are forced into chain reaction, and the model of creating a momentary universe related to the harmonics of Tritium, of its event horizon, the depletion of the fuel, the crushing of the event horizon by the good old universe around it then the release of the antimatter, happens in nearly the same way as did the nuclear bomb. The harmonics frequency range however, is an order of magnitude higher than that of the fission bomb, and since the Sun’s primary energy source exactly matches the secondary harmonics (simple hydrogen isotopes are the Sun’s main fuel), the dissonance between this momentary universe’s harmonics and that of the surrounding good old universe is slight. This relationship means the event horizon has a lot less work to do; the attempts to shred it are a whisper when compared to the trouble Uranium’s event horizon has. The biggest, most important feature is its density.
Remember the model of gravity on Earth and our seismographs measurement of earthquakes? The maelstrom of mechanical activity at the Earth’s core was so frenzied the low-frequency seismic waves were disrupted as they traversed this region and were blocked from passage. That model showed the failure of lower frequencies waves trying to traverse regions packed with harmonics at a much higher range. Like the Earth in the frequency range of earthquakes, the density of the momentary universe created by the fusion reaction far exceeds anything around it – including a very local fission explosion. Right next to this new Tritium universe, a nuclear bomb has just gone off. Its products, plasma, neutrons, secondary products, and material are hopping around trying to destroy everything, but the Tritium universe has a fundamental frequency so much higher than the Uranium bomb that, for the products of the uranium fission bomb’s discharge, the Tritium universe looks absolutely solid. As the aftermath of the fission bomb washes over the Tritium universe, I imagine Tritium’s event horizon as made of woven fabric. When the abuse of the nearby explosion contacts the surface, this fabric stretches, and the threads spread and also thicken in direct relation to the increase and decreasing gaps between the threads. The integrity of the event horizon is maintained by this fabric’s use of thickness to separate antimatter from the universe as dissonant external harmonics attack the Tritium universe.
Locally, the Uranium fission bomb’s event horizon has already collapsed, is expanding and crushing the neighboring space. Meanwhile, the Tritium universe is using its fuel. The event horizon is playing card games with the Sun while tapping its foot on the local disturbances (Earth) without much annoyance, and the Tritium universe has become a local gravity well. This takes some explaining, but the simple answer is that, in real space, gravity rules the universe, but VIBRATION is its local government. This Tritium source of nearly the highest harmonics found in the Solar System creates a local surrounding region bathed in frequencies that overpowers the Earth’s ability to vibrate the particles with its feeble lower harmonics – they get lost around the Tritium gravitational horizon like the seismic waves in the Earth’s center of gravity’s corona region. Like the earthquake model, around the event horizon, the particles are no longer able to see the harmonics of gravity from the Earth as easily, so they begin to adjust their collisions and distribution to attune to the Tritium universe.
There is an old chestnut of wisdom that essentially states, “If you take a collection of balls of varying sizes, place them in a jar and shake them, when you open the jar, you find the largest balls have ended up on top of the smaller balls”. This model infers those of us with the largest presence in a social or business situation will prevail as a natural law of science. Wisdom set aside, the reason this model works is that the smaller balls can fill any subspace in the jar more completely – making that subspace more densely filled with mass. As the jar is shaken, the smaller balls can express more work in relation to gravity in a space within the jar, so they work their way to the bottom. In the jar, the shaking is the model for the vibrations expressed by the Tritium universe, and the smallest balls model those particles of matter surrounding the event horizon whose ability to resonate with the tritium is easier. Larger balls model those particles that have more mechanical difficulty with Tritium’s harmonics, so move more slowly, remaining more responsive to the Earth.
As the Tritium event horizon continues, the particles of matter around it attempt to organize themselves in accordance with the expressed harmonics of the Tritium bomb. For all Significant Moments when the event horizon exists, this reorganization continues, creating a layer of dense particles moving inward toward the event horizon. Each particle’s acceleration is directly related to its relative density in the Tritium-generated harmonics field. The most important feature of this phenomenon is the acceleration’s ability to physically organize an ever-increasing set of particles that just happened to be in the neighborhood when somebody pressed the button down. Since the duration of the event horizon for human-made fusion bombs is short, any particle’s linear acceleration is slight, but they use the acceleration to jostle each other into organization. Since this jostling has a uniform fundamental frequency, the acceleration applied to every particle is in harmony with the vibration of all other particles nearby. The set of particles naturally becomes more dense and is more able to transmit the harmonics emanating from the event horizon. More efficiency means more particles to join the dance as the event horizon remains.
This is an important concept. The highest frequency harmonics in real space surrounding the Tritium universe is within the fabric of its actual event horizon: interior to the event horizon, the concept of spatial vibration is meaningless because there is no time. The local region of space and its included particles that surround the event horizon cannot support the highest of these harmonics because the included matter, in the form of non-Tritium particles, cannot transmit Tritium vibration without dampening some hum. For every Significant Moment, as your model’s shell is positioned farther away from the event horizon, its opportunity to receive the entire range of harmonics is less than the shells closer to the event horizon. For you the scientist, there is a Significant Moment whose duration and beginning instant is set in relation to detonation. Its beginning instant determines the status of the particles of the region surrounding the event horizon. The later is the beginning of your Significant Moment, the more time the Tritium universe had to organize the surrounding particles. The duration of your Significant Moment defines the range of harmonics to be studied, and a later beginning instant will also show that frequencies in the object range will be present within a larger, expanding shell.
Note: The Uranium fission bomb’s synthetic universe could also do this to the particles around it, but at a hyperbolically (mathematically very much) smaller extent.
All of this organization of the particles surrounding the Tritium universe must come to an end. The event horizon has struck up quite a relationship with the Sun, and they have had the time to put in a few duets of Broadway show tunes, but lately, the event horizon has felt a bit empty inside. Outside, more and more particles join the singing and are trying to keep up, but can only sing the choruses. As the event horizon begins to lose its voice, fewer new particles join each successive refrain. Feeling a tap on his shoulder, the event horizon turns in to find a small group of Tritium atoms, with their ‘Born to Blast’ tattoos.
A representative of the group says, “We’re leaving now, and we are the last of the pack. Thanks for your help.” They join hands and the group spins into a blur. The blur suddenly shrinks and a bunch of neutrons pop out and pass through the event horizon, blazing their way through the surrounding particles. The song of the last Tritium atoms in the critical mass is sung, and the event horizon sings with them, then is silent. The group of last atoms is now half in number to what it was, and they are all fat, silent and appear bored. Actually, they have become helium atoms. No tattoos. The antimatter librarians have mysteriously departed, and virtually no Tritium atoms remain. The space is filled with helium atoms arranging for lunch.
The Tritium event horizon tries to sing and has no voice. The Sun continues to sing, the Earth is still chanting its choruses, and so the event horizon excuses itself and vanishes. Where the nuclear Uranium bomb’s event horizon is shredded to ruin by the Sun’s storm, this thermonuclear one simply and instantly fades away in comparison. Contact between helium pushed out of a temporary universe, and the particles of the good old universe initiates. The temporary gravity well is gone, and these helium atoms are hotter than anything outside the Sun, with a few frequencies just below the fundamentals of Tritium fusion, and a lot of harmonics just below helium’s fundamentals – much higher ranges than the Uranium fission bomb’s atoms. Past efforts to organize the particles surrounding the temporary Tritium universe allow its aftermath harmonics to expand in a very organized and uniform manner, so, compared to its cousin the nuclear explosion, this expansion grows fantastically rapidly. The destructive force is hotter and moving faster. Its particles are smaller, more mobile, and helium is chemically more inert than almost every atom it will contact, so the spread of energy is not as slowed by chemical reaction. Needless to say, for comparable number of Uranium atoms in fission and Tritium atoms in fusion, the blast of Tritium is far more powerful. Helium atoms also have a higher fundamental frequency than do the products of nuclear explosions, so their ability to mix with the particles of matter is much greater and less work for them.
For the remainder of the example, this plasma expands and promotes the destruction of great volumes of material. The Tritium burned more efficiently than does Uranium, and the product Helium is not as radioactive as the products of fission. There is an interesting phenomenon at the end of a large thermonuclear explosion. As the super-heated plasma and its byproducts expand, the entire volume of space is forced to cool by the application of the plasma’s kinetic energy to the mass in the good old universe. Shortly after the explosion, this cooling produces two distinct regions: on the wavefront of the expanding explosion, local pressures are high, while at the original center of explosion, there is now a very strong relative vacuum as every particle of material present has lost its high frequency resonances and now needs a lot less space. This vacuum is bounded on all sides by the expanding explosion, so when the energy of expansion is exhausted, vacuum pulls with such great force, the devastation of the neighborhood is nearly doubled as the high velocity wind direction is reversed, pulling any particles with it. This feature is included in the model below (The Big Bang) of a much bigger explosion.
When I was very young, a group of us re-discovered a ‘cave’ on the ridge above our town. The feature was just a crevice in the rock face, and every generation had known about it, so it was noting more than a focal point of our interest – a remote, special place for boys to congregate and do boy things.
On a particular Saturday afternoon, the local theater was showing a feature I really wanted to see, so I joined a few pals and we spent the afternoon there. As we were going in, I remember hearing the fire stations’ sirens sound from at least a few in town, but thought nothing of it. I did not know that my other friends had set fire to the forest above my town.
When I got home, my Mother asked me very sternly where I had been, so I repeated telling her as I had done before walking down to the theater. She asked me who was with me before relating the tale of the fire. It turns out that other mothers who sons were not accounted for in the two hours since the fire began had talked to my Mother, who could comfort them by explaining that their sons were most probably with me at the movies.
The boys at the cave that day got into a lot of trouble. They had, as I recall, been smoking cigarettes and had set fire to the forest. In our society, this was doubly sinful, so their punishment was great.
The point is that, had it been a different Saturday, if the theater had been showing a dull feature, then I would have most probably been among the punishable. Though my Mother knew I often traveled to the cave, she did not feel my guilt by association was worth more than a severe lecture about fire and of cigarettes. It was sheer luck that I was not there. I later spent years fighting forest fires. I began working on the forest fire lines at the age of fifteen, years before the legal age, and I always thought of that Saturday.
There were other unfortunate times in the past when I was at some other ‘there’ when a bad thing happened. Car accidents, group mistakes, and personal failures of thought or ethics. As time has continued, these brushes with fate have diminished through wisdom, but have diminished more so from out of a conscious effort to become more holy. I saw friends die in drunken driving accidents, so in my twenties, I stopped drinking alcohol entirely for over seven years. That alone probably kept me from much of harm’s way, but my entire life became more successful because I chose not to drink.
I consider the ethics of an action as well as its consequence, and as I grow even more wise, the motives behind actions take more of my attention than the acts themselves. By looking more closely at intentions, I grow closer to understanding Forgiveness and Redemption.
The best intentions followed by thoughtful action can fill your life with Joy. The best intentions can be the best ‘enabler’ you will ever find. God presents these intentions to you during all moments.
